Panchayat Merger Proposal Withdrawn

State government’s municipal administration and Urban development (MA&UD) department has decided to withdraw the proposal of merger plan for 36 surrounding Panchayats in GHMC, because of some legal problems and protests. The government has given a proposal to convert them either into municipalities or nagarpanchayats.

A few months ago, MA&UD department created four nagar panchayats – Badangpet, Pedda Amberpet, Medchal and Ibrahimpatnam by clubbing some villages surrounding them. Now, they are planning to convert some of the areas into nagar panchayats and municipalities.

  • Shamshabad, Boduppal might be converted into a muncipality
  • Nizampet and Gundla Pochampally might be converted into nagar panchayats.

These new proposals have been prepared based on population, revenue and geographical area.
